CMS Renews Optum/QSSI’s HealthCare.gov Contract
In a statement on Tuesday, CMS said that health information technology services provider Optum/QSSI will continue to serve -- under a new contract -- as a general contractor on HealthCare.gov through Oct. 31. The firm had been hired to build the website's data hub, but HHS expanded its role to oversee repairs on the problem-plagued site.
